Wisdom teeth extraction is an important part of preserving patient comfort and safety. At Family First Dentistry, we provide successful wisdom tooth extractions, keeping your comfort in mind the whole time.
Dr. Harr may recommend wisdom tooth removal to help you avoid:
- Impacted teeth
- Swollen, painful gums
- Infections that spread throughout the body
- Jawbone disintegration
- Crowded or crooked teeth
Wisdom teeth may erupt crooked, or may not erupt at all. These final molars are often the source of great pain for the patient.
You can avoid the pitfalls of wisdom teeth with a quick extraction process at Family First Dentistry.
Our experts complete every wisdom tooth extraction with a numbing local anesthetic. This medication, applied before treatment, will allow you to avoid feeling any pain or discomfort during the removal.
It is common for patients to experience anxiety regarding wisdom tooth removal. Your Family First dentist is mindful of this, and will provide you with the amenities and relaxation options you need to feel comfortable during your appointment. You will be pleasantly surprised by how simple the process can be.

Wisdom teeth begin to grow into the mouth between ages 17 and 22 for most patients. The teeth place an undue amount of pressure on the jaw. In the average human mouth, there is not enough space to accommodate the wisdom teeth properly.
Although some individuals are born without wisdom teeth, the majority of the population has one to four that grow into the mouth. It is best to extract these teeth before side effects like pain, swelling, and infection occur.
Patients in their late teens are due for a wisdom teeth exam. Dr. Harr can help you determine your individual needs and whether extraction is the right course of action for you.
